iPhone 5 coming end of June?

iPhone 5 coming end of June?Recent whisperings have suggested that Apple will buck the trend for revealing the latest iPhone at its annual Worldwide Developer’s Conference (WWDC) in June. This year’s WWDC will reportedly be decidedly developer-centric.

iOS 5 is also rumoured for an autumn – not summer – release, so we were fully expecting the iPhone 5 to appear later in the year. But some fresh rumours out of Korea suggest the iPhone 5 will launch in June after all.

Korean site ETNews reports that the iPhone 5 will be released in the fourth week of June. It also suggests that the iPhone 5 will have its own launch event, shortly after WWDC and starring Steve Jobs himself.

ETNews writes: “‘iPhone 5,’ the next model of iPhone 4, will be released on the coming 4th week of June. In the midst of the iPhone 5 postponement rumors, Apple has confirmed that iPhone 5 will be released as planned and it will be released simultaneously in Korea through SK Telecom and KT.”

The story was picked up by MacRumours, which points out that the article was published on April 1. They suspect it might be an April Fools joke, and are currently awaiting word from ETNews.

I spoke to orange today and they said that it would become available in September and not before!

Ha, Orange/Three/o2/Tesco mobile - Not a single CEO of the aforementioned network operators has any idea on the shipping date for the next Iphone iteration, let alone some Geordie working in their CS department!

Ridiculous - sorry, but no ONE in Orange would know at this point! 3 weeks before the first iPhone was launched exclusively on o2 Ireland various Vodafonistas told me vf were to get it "in 4 weeks"

Just had a look at the site, couldn't find the article about the Iphone 5 release date, however found something probably just as shocking. Korean Iphone users can in addition to the Apple Appstore purchase apps through the KT Olleh appstore. (KT are a network provider).
